The finger fell off…

This is an interview that Gillan and Glover did circa 1987 for the German TV. Make all you want out of it, but I’ve found it, ahem, entertaining 😉

Thanks to deltic17 for uploading the video and to Andrey Gusenkov for bringing it to your attention.

    I don’t think they were drunken but stoned…in fact during that years Gillan and Glover used to smoke hush-ish as Gillan said…very funny!

    I just found out how to transfer old footage so this was first on my list! Classic Gillan! Roger Glover’s face is a picture.

    I think this was 1988 during a short German tour?

    They only did some dates in Italy and Germany I think….

    Missed out that year due to the distance, I did regret that thinking later, and probably I was trying to learn how to budget in my year living alone and studying Psychology in Leiden.

    Ian was obviously irritated with her questions, combined with having to take the piss.
